Re: Konqueror and Java

I installed Java using the information at this site:
It works great under Firefox, but I can't seem to get Konqueror to recognize
the java plugin. I went to configuration and rescanned plugins, but the
java plugin is not getting picked up.
When I go to sites with applets, they state the plugin is not working.
Has anyone gotten the Java plugin working under Konqueror?
Hmm; I seldom use Konqueror, but just now I tried, and Java does not
work for me either. I installed Java from blackdown.org, and manually
untarred, installed, and moved the resulting directory into /usr/local,
and then manually made the appropriate mozilla-firefox symlink to the
plugin. Java works fine for me in Firefox.
I tried tinkering with the Konqueror settings; pointing Konqueror to my
moz-ff plugin, and directly to the /usr/local/ Java plugin directory,
and I found another Java setting in Konqueror. But after 10 or 15
minutes, I gave up. For me, it's just one more reason to prefer Firefox
over Konqueror. I want to like Konqueror . . . .
BTW, I've never been able to get Flash to work in Konqueror either,
although it works fine in Firefox.
So for me, I just avoid using Konqueror most of the time.
Sorry this isn't a solution, which is what you really wanted, but at
least you know now that at least one other person has seen similar issues.
